It costs approximately $25,000 dollars to train a cancer sniffing or PTSD service dog to high standards of our own Good Canine Academy certification. The reason this number is so high is because, along with food, grooming, toys, and training equipment, there are thousands of hours of training involved in teaching a dog to perform these specialized tasks.

As a charitable organization, we rely on donations to cover our expenses and operating costs. Even the smallest donation helps make a difference in a veteran’s life. Remember, Good Canine Academy is a 501(c)3 so every donation is tax deductible!
